Low Carb Sweet Garlic Chicken

  • Author: Deb
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 large thighs 1x


You will love these chicken thighs that are covered in a sweet and garlicky sauce.  The extra bonus is there is no refined sugar added to the sauce.



  • 2 lbs. organic chicken thighs (about 4)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 45 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute ( I used Swerve)
  • 12 teaspoons seasoning of choice ( I used salt and pepper, onion powder and rosemary)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cook garlic in butter in a pan until melted and garlic is lightly sautéed.  Don’t overcook the garlic.
  3. Stir in brown sugar substitute and seasonings and continue cooking until completely mixed and begins to slightly thicken.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  5. Using a spoon or your fingers rub the garlic mixture under the skin  and on top of the chicken thighs.
  6. Bake for approximately 20- 25 minutes or until lightly browned and thermometer reads 165°.
  7. If you want it crispier, put pan under the broiler for a minute or two.
